Gotta be from Nate. We have a tropical cyclone statement here. Only getting side swiped by the remnants though.

Cloudy, mild. A couple of very brief showers, just enough to wet the ground but not even loud enough to hear.

Yesterday was sunny, though - added a new door. Just white for now. But I've finally decided for certain the colours I'll do next year.

Pretty amazing start to October in eastern Canada!

The weather in Japan the last week or so has been perfect, around 25 in the afternoon (next week that changes with highs predicted in the teens and rain).

I went for a hike yesterday up the tallest mountain in Western Japan, Ishzuchi-San. It is 1,982 meters. The weather was amazing for photos (lots of pockets of mountain mist) and the fall colors were at their peak...on the peak.

Here are a few pics I took.

Overnight low last night was a ridiculous 15C in Moncton. Currently 18C with an expected high of 20C. Very sticky again with a dew point of 16.4C. Following complaints by my sons, I broke down and turned the A/C back on last evening.

Rain from ex-hurricane Nate expected this evening........

If you replace the siding, then you should probably use that opportunity to swap the two upper windows back to windows of the original size. The house would look much better then. (Pretty sure this operation would, in the end, be a good investment.)

I don't know what size they would've been? But I do much prefer the window arrangement on the green one attached. Not a fan of the size on the brown house, though. I have to be careful because my door and window are very close to that edge of the house and with the trim I want, even if it's just a few inches wide, there'll be very little siding left there for colour.

Inside the house the windows are also both very close to walls. The wall between my bedroom (right upstairs window) and bathroom (left upstairs window), for example, is only about an 8x10 framed photo from the wall:



Beyond that, today is overcast, sporadic seconds of rain again. Basically the same as yesterday.

I'm not sure you need increased width for your upstairs windows, but increased height might be nice. I agree with lio that the current windows look like a previous retrofit, and don't match the rest of the facade.

"Facade". I do declare, I've never thought of my house as having a facade before. Hehehe.

Okay, why are these different colour wires there? What is that for?

I believe it's 22 today......rained this morning. Gonna go enjoy the weather today, especially since the overcast sky is giving way to a clearer sky.

Actually made it up to 23C in Moncton today, but it didn't feel as warm as yesterday because it was fairly cloudy all day. It's starting to rain in the city as I type.......

Sunny but cool today. Great day for a long bike ride in the Valley. There was a dusting of snow yesterday.

Cincinnati does not have above freezing mean in January so therefore it does not cover the requirements for subtropical weather.

NYC is warmer just about every single month of the year save for the spring months, has more sun, twice as little snowy days, and a much higher all-time low. The growing is season is a lot longer in NYC while the humidity is much more constant throughout the year (although not as extreme as Cincinnati in July and August). On October 10, the dewpoint in NYC is currently 23C at 12AM. Cincinnati never got above 21C dewpoint.

Cincinnati would be a better comparable with Boston.

What a few humid days in Boston, you're entering a completely new world once you cross into Massachusetts. The car's thermometer took a dive from 23C to 17C shortly after crossing New Hampshire today. While exactly the opposite happened 2 days ago as we approached Patriots land.

Temperature was about 24C on Saturday, 24C on Sunday and 23C today. The dewpoints were 20C and above for the whole weekend so naturally the lows were also above 20C.

A friend from Houston who met us in Boston described the weather as slightly chilly. I hope he doesn't read this forum where apparently high dewpoints are the worst thing ever.

BTW-Pretty good weather in Montreal yesterday, high of 24.7C (low of 16.6C). Came back tonight to 17C but with a dewpoint of 16C, it felt very comfortable even after the Boston pleasant sauna.

31c (37c with humidity) in Shanghai. Yuck.

I'm done with summer, and ready for winter now.

I'll let the Premier handle today's weather update.



If you view the picture full size, it's still almost pitch black but just light enough to discern it's out of focus.
